Gold Megaways slot review

gold megaways slot gameGold Megaways slot from Big Time Gaming is their first which returns to an old theme, in this case, GOLD slot featuring Spandau Ballet's track of the same name. As you will see soon, we have elements of other BTG Megaways games here such as Extra Chilli slot with its gamble wheel and White Rabbit with the expanding bonus reels. The music we've therefore dealt with, the symbols are gold items and otherwise the standard BTG sound effects for reels and wins. So can we collect up some of this gold for our bankroll or will it end up mega-costing us?

On the reels...
No scrolling row of 4 tiles here so 6 reels of 2-7 random rows each or in other words 64-117649 ways on Gold Megaways slot. You have Disc scatters on all reels, Briefcase Wilds on the middle 4 reels which can randomly reveal a 3x multiplier therefore 81x is possible. The thing of note here is the very high top 6-of-a-kind pay of 100x stake for the Watch. After this we have Gold Car or Credit Card 3x, Ring 2x with the usual six card values of 1.4 down to 0.8 for each full way. Winning symbols are replaced from above in tumbles and no increasing multiplier is present in the base game or bonus with symbols appearing singly and stacked.

Free Games
This is where your first new idea is presented. As well as getting 3 Gold Disc scatters for 12 free games with +4 for each one over, there are 2 more ways to trigger. Firstly, any win from 20x to 69.9x can be gambled on a red-green segmented wheel as with Extra Chilli slot with the green part bigger the higher the win is in that range. You lose or get the 12 spins. Finally, any win of 70x plus can automatically be swapped for the very volatile bonus. (You get treated now to the full Spandau Ballet 'Gold' track with vocals unlike the mere instrumental in the base game by the way!)
So now the mechanic - you firstly spin a wheel which establishes the minimum amount of Megaways you'll see every spin in the bonus round, so the higher the better. The enhancement is that the scatters are now Gold Tokens and each appearing will expand the reel by 1 row, which is why the starting Megaways being high can be of great help. Now the White Rabbit slot element - expand any reel to 10 rows and it then locks there and awards +8 spins, if it's one of the middle 4 reels then any Wilds landing on it thereafter will always be at the 3x multiplier. So yes, we could feasibly get up to 60 spins and one million Megaways for some potentially colossal pays!

Our View...
GOLD Megaways slot has a 96.42% RTP and is brutally volatile. It's possible to hit 8,100x bet for just a single way of the top 6OAK with 4 of the 3x Wild in the base game. With the 20x or more win chance feature gamble, the base game seems set for less frequent but bigger average wins so beware. It's not as hard to get the feature one way or the other as it is for example on Bonanza slot, but it is extremely volatile. If you get a low amount of ways it's hard to get anything even covering your win amount if you gambled to it via that method. It's all about retriggers, as with say Lil' Devil slot so getting two or more reels expanded will pretty much guarantee a very high outcome. The price of Aussie Gold is nearly at a record high right now, as you might well discover when trying to mine some here, but if you hit that big nugget...
